Pete Dye's colourfully named course has since it opened in 1971 maintained a reputation as the top layout in the DR, perhaps even the whole Caribbean. Everything from the superb pro shop to the breathtaking ocean vistas is simply perfect here, so it's no wonder that an online pole by Golf Digest put the Teeth of the Dog in seventeenth position on its list of the top courses beyond the borders of the US. The two nines each extend from the clubhouse, and though neither encounters much in the way of woods or rough, the sea breezes are more or less constantly in play. The course takes its name from the signature 194-yard, par 3 16th hole, which is set on an inlet that resembles the gaping jaws of a giant dog. No golfer, regardless of skill level, should miss the chance to play the most renowned course in the country.
